Guest Posting Elsewhere Today: Marinda Redd Bankhead

While working on my Eminent Women series, I started on a tangent about some of the early black pioneers in Utah Territory. 

Today I'm guest posting on Keepapitchinin: the Mormon History Blog with a story called Marinda Redd Bankhead: A Slave in Zion. It's the story of a cross-country journey made by a woman who had no choice in the decision to go, but who, after being freed, made a pleasant life for herself and her family in Spanish Fork, Utah, and remained firm in the faith that she was baptized into as a young woman.

Come visit Keepa and leave a comment or ask a question!
